Fresh produce group Oppy has added another international first to its wide-ranging repertoire by becoming the inaugural importer of the organic green seedless Arra 15 variety.
The new, premium organic grapes originate from the Buena Vista Valley, in Casma, Peru which lies in the midpoint between other notable grape growing regions of Piura to the north and Ica to the south.
Oppy will offer medium and large organic Arra 15 grapes, which will deliver an "exceptional flavor and crunch, deftly balancing between acidity and sweetness".
“Oppy has always prioritised innovation throughout its 162-year history and we are proud to consistently bring retailers what their customers are demanding,” said Oppy’s director of import grapes and stonefruit Bill Poulos. “Our import grape season is already off to a fantastic start and with the addition of this new premium variety we are adding yet another first to our comprehensive and innovative grape programme.”
The company is working with Peru’s Fundo Los Paltos to introduce the organic Arra 15, expanding its well-established import grape programme which has already offered several new varieties for the first time this season such as SunWorld Innovations’ Midnight Beauty, Scarlotta Seedless, Sable Seedless, Autumncrisp and many others.
